Bowali Visitor Centre

Bowali Visitor Centre Named after the Bowali Creek which flows nearby, the centre's long lineal design was inspired by an Aboriginal Rock Shelter. The Bowali Visitor Centre contains a wealth of information about Kakadu National Park. Information staff, videos, displays and a library are all available to help plan your visit to Kakadu.

Also at the Bowali Visitor Centre is Marrawuddi Gallery which stocks art and crafts, books and gifts. Refreshments are available from the Anmak An-me Café (open 9am to 5pm).

Allow a few hours to explore the centre and learn a little more about Kakadu.

Bowali Visitor Centre is open 8am to 5pm each day and can be contacted on (08) 8938 1121

Commercially operated camping areas with power sites are available at the Kakadu Resort, Kakadu Lodge and Caravan Park and the Gagudju Lodge Cooinda.

Major park camping areas suitable for large groups are Merl, Muirella Park, Mardugal and Gunlom. These camping areas all have solar heated showers, toilets and washing tub facilities.

Camping areas are divided into 'generator' and 'non-generator' zones.

Free bush camping areas are located throughout the park. Facilities at these sites are basic or non existent.
